Brazil to vote on total gun sales ban
The BBC has a story on the upcoming gun ban vote in Brazil here.
Here's some excerpts from the article:
"The Brazilian Congress has approved a plan for a nationwide referendum on whether to ban the sale of firearms."
"Rangel Bandeira, a rights group representative, was quoted on the Brazilian senate's internet site as saying the law meant Congress is "in harmony with society... that has been fighting for years to make the country less violent"."
(Just WHAT do those lawmakers smoke down there? ........Mr. Completely)
"However, gun lobbyists say the public needs weapons to defend themselves against criminals who have bypassed existing laws to acquire their guns."
(Ya think?? ..........Mr. Completely)
Let's hope the general public have enought sense to vote no on this, and let's hope they get a fair vote count if they do........
